Barbie Cake



My daughter wanted to have a Barbie theme for her birthday party this year.  Granted, we were having it at the local bowling alley, but a girl's gotta have decorations, right?  Well, we went to Walmart and got the necessary paper goods and picked up a couple boxes of cake mix.  I wasn't going to go all out this year with the cake. I was going to keep it simple and just frost it with colors that coordinated with the plates and napkins. 



Well, after talking to a friend of mine, Janna, I was convinced it would be easy to do a simple Barbie-themed cake.  She looked up a picture of the Barbie logo online and I took a peek.  From looking at it, I guessed it wouldn't be too difficult.



After I made the cake, a simple box mix, I searched Google as she had done.  I then printed a picture of the logo and cut it out.  Once that was done, I placed it on the frosted cake and traced with a toothpick.  I proceeded then to fill in the shape with colored frosting.  Easy peasy!  I'm glad I did it.  I think it came out very cute.  And it appears my daughter was just as pleased.
